Silence around me enought to bring me to tears. In this car, it's two worlds, the haves and have nots. Hundreds of folks teetering on the brink of an age of design and triumph only to be lost amongst the fallen angels of yesteryear. Today today, we wait in this chasm for night-break. It is a deep breath spasming the mechanical muscles waiting for the rush. Aching and groaning, we wait in the belly of this beast. It is pain and longing, cold touched by little rivlets of heat. The ear hears only distant conversation muffled by the longt dark. A few moments has become an eternity turning each of us into private worlds. The voice from above warns of more delay and the stomach churns.
